Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s Producing Artistic Director Bob Hupp is stepping out of the theatre and directing a special production Disfarmer for the first-ever ACANSA Arts Festival in central Arkansas this week.

The production, which is written by award-winning Arkansas playwright Werner Trieschmann, will premiere at 8 p.m. today (Sept. 25) at Argenta Community Theatre, 405 Main St, North Little Rock.

The production is a comedic portrait that tells the story of Mike Disfarmer, an eccentric photographer from Heber Springs, Ark., who charged townsfolk and visitors a quarter to have their picture taken in the early ’40s—and caused a minor mania decades later as New York gallery owners “discovered” his work and descended on the small Arkansas town.

Disfarmer will run every night through Saturday (Sept. 27). Showtime is at 8 p.m.

General tickets for the show are $30, with additional student and VIP options. Get ticket prices and purchase online here.
